How to Tell If You Need to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

According to the EPA nearly 90% of our lives are spent indoors, including the office and within your own Carson City home. A lot of our exposure to contaminants happens indoors, with indoor air being two-to-five times more dirty than outdoor air. That is why your home’s indoor air quality is essential for great health. So what are some signs that you may need to boost your indoor air quality?

How You Feel

There are quite a few physical symptoms of reduced indoor air quality in Carson City, like: fatigue, watery eyes, headaches, coughing, sneezing and a number of others. The symptoms can often be incorrectly identified as other problems such as allergies or a cold. If your symptoms seem to go away when you’re outside of the house, it could be an indoor air quality matter.

Odors and Damage

Bad indoor air quality doesn’t just affect your health; it might damage the things in your home. You could start noticing your walls or ceilings look discolored, your wood furniture warping or your paint chipping. These are all things that show that you may have poor indoor air quality. There also might be a musty smell that doesn’t seem to go away.
